World Economic Forum Essay Contest: What does the fourth industrial revolution mean to you?

World Economic Forum Essay Contest: What does the fourth industrial revolution mean to you?

Deadline: December 31, 2015

The World Economic Forum is inviting budding writers to enter their essay contest, focused on our new era of technology. The website states-

‘Man and machine are converging, digitisation is disrupting everything, new technologies are emerging more quickly than we can imagine them, let alone think up the rules to govern their use. This is the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a new era where we will be able to 3D-print both livers and guns.

What does this change mean to you? Can you provide a concrete example of how the Fourth Industrial Revolution will play out in your community, your industry, or even in your family? What should we do to manage its risks and reap its rewards?’

Essay submissions of up to 900 word on the Fourth Industrial Revolution are being accepted.

Award

A shortlist of five essays will be published on the World Economic Forum’s Agenda blog platform, which is read by 1.5 million people a month.

The winning essay will be shared with delegates at Davos and promoted across our social media channels during the meeting, while the winner will receive a signed copy of Professor Klaus Schwab’s book.

Eligibility

The contest is for members of the public. World Economic Forum staff and constituents are not eligible.
